The old barns we had on our ranch never got painted. They were wood colored. But were warm inside when the animals were inside.

That warmth is one reason Germans built their houses on top of their barns. Easy to do on hillsides.

Have seen many red barns. Reminds me of the days of growing up. Those cold snowy days!

Barns are painted red because that's the cheapest thing to use. I love the picture, but there are some odd things about it. They've cut a hole in the side wall and extended the roof part way around the silo?? There also appears to be a hole above the hay mow doors. Our silo has the ladder on the inside, with a door below it.

Okay, Oz--the things on the peak--do they promote air circulation or what?

OzSomeOne- You are right, that barn red paint was the cheapest, and believe me, given the size of the old barns, it took a lot of paint to cover it. The hole over the hay mow door was for a wide plank, nailed with one smaller side up, and the two wider sides being vertical. This stuck out through the hole above the mow door and was used with a hook and pulley to haul hay bales, or any thing heavy-ish up to the mow. The two things on the roof peak were electric fans that spun inside the housing to exhaust excess heat to help to protect against internal combustion

Thanks Jimlahar. I looked that up when nobody answered yesterday. Apparently they call those additions cupolas and they began to be used when farmers started making barns less drafty to reduce the amount they had to feed their livestock. They discovered in making the barn airtight the wood was being ruined by the animal gases (exhale, sweat and so on) that were trapped in the barn and increased the combustion possibility. So solving one problem created two more that the cupola vents were installed to solve.
There was no mention whether they all had fans.

Pixi, yes they are exhaust fans. Jimlahar, I forgot about the pulley system apparatus - I only remember seeing it used once. Have you ever seen a barn attached to the silo like this? Looks like a strange jerry-rigged deal to me.

OzSomeOne: Yes, in fact our silo was attached, so there was a door from the ban into the silo on each floor, and made it easy to get the silage to the cows. I agree with you, the one in the puzzle looks like the farmer added a connection between the silo and barn sometime after the barn and silo were built.

They usually put a couple of cupolas on each barn.

For whatever reason, our barn was painted white. I don't remember it being repainted once and it always looked good to me. The hay floor was built out of cypress and long after my folks had passed away, I went there and took some of the cypress and brought it from Missouri to Georgia where I now live. I have a floor to ceiling bookcase about 7 ft wide. I was able to make several touchups through out my home. It was true peckie (sp) cypress.and it is the most beautiful wood I've ever seen. It had 40 or 50 or so years to get that way..

Is cypress like cedar in that insects don't infest it?

Jldenney, I bet your bookcase is lovely. I'd never heard of pecky cypress, so looked it up - here's what I found:
"What is Pecky Cypress?
This is Cypress wood that in certain parts of the log, is in the early stages of decomposition from either a fungus or environmental effects. It has holesť in it. Pecky Cypress is harder to find due to it being found in limited logs. You actually don't know if the log has Pecky in it until the log is cut. Pecky Cypress can be in New Growth Cypress and Dead Head Cypress. It is a very desired wood due to the rarity and unique appearance."

Those fans must be exhausted by the end of the day.

Is that a basketball hoop on the front of the barn? I love old barns, reminds me of my childhood.
